Two years ago, on April 1, 2004 an article appeared on OSNews titled “Will Open Source Come to the Rescue?” Two years later, I am proud to report that there is indeed an effort to bring open source software to the Emergency Service community. I would like to take this time to tell you what has transpired in the past two years.
The effort within the Veterans Affairs hospitals to re-write in Java the Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) client software is said to have been re-started. The project, known as CPRS-R, is to convert the VA’s graphic user interface client for clinicians from Borland’s Kylix to Java. The project had stalled for a lengthy period of time.
